Blame has an inverse relationship with accountability!

Blame has an inverse relationship with accountability!

Blame is simply a way that we discharge anger.
People who blame a lot seldom have the tenacity and grit to actually hold people accountable because their energy is spent raging for 15 seconds to figure out who’s fault something was.
Blaming is harmful to our personal and business relationships and it’s one of the reasons for missed opportunities for empathy. Because when something happens and a story is being told, blamers are not really listening, they are thinking through who could be to blame.  Making the connections as quickly as they can, to figure out who is at fault. Let’s explore and unleash new possibilities in your performance and results together.
I invite you and any blamer out there to change their 15 second scorecard.
Having had the pleasure to invite and hear Dr. Jason Selk speak at a National Best of the Best Conference, along with a room full of top performing financial advisors, I heard his take on Relentless Solutions Focus. Dr. Selk is considered to be one of the premier performance coaches in the United States. He helps numerous well- known professional and Olympic athletes as well as Fortune 500 and Fortune 100 executives and organizations develop the mental toughness necessary for high-level success.
I’ll share what I took away from listening to him.
When you are presented with a problem, whatever that looks like, when it presents  itself, only allow for 15 – 90 seconds of being in the place of the problem and then move to creating a list of solutions. The more often you adopt this style of thinking the shorter the time to switch to solution will be.
How was your 2015?  Did you meet or exceed your goals and expectation?
Would an accountability partner support your efforts to move away from blame and step into accountability?
